if you can cut and reconnect 2 wires you can do it. It's THAT simple.
These pumps create flow, not pressure. Pressure is the result of flow through a restricion. This restriction is a spring loaded diaphragm called a fuel pressure regulator and the spring pressure determines if the diaphragm opens and allows excess volume to purge to the return line (and thus lowering pressure), in short, you can bolt any flow pump to it and the regulator will regulate the pressure to the desired setting (well, if the fuel flow is so large that the regulator or return line becomes restrictive then pressure will rise above reg setting but you will never achieve that much fuel flow)

Try this link I did it from this and all is well !
it helps out stock pressure, change out fuel filter as well. mine went from a weak 8 1/2 to a solid 10 after the pump change then manually changed the psi up to 14psi that was the hard part. Had to make my own flexible tool to reach the bottom of the pressure regulator.
